Speaking during a televised  campaign rally at Njamba in Blantyre in the run up to the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections, Chimwendo Banda said DPP wants to use  opinion polls to mislead Malawians .

“It is a cooked up survey and I urge our supporters to ignore it,” he said.

He also warned that the regime is using fake news reports about Malawi’s election that is made to look as if it is from credible international news organisation like BBC and others to look like local news sites circulating on social media.

“Whether you will pay pollsters or the media but you won’t stop MCP winning this time around. Malawians will decide with their votes on May 21,” the firebrand MCP youth director said.

The presidential election on May 21 will see incumbent President Mutharika run against six candidates including his vice president Saulos Chilima of UTM Party, MCP president Lazarous Chakwera and United Democratic Front (UDF) presidential hopeful Atupele Muluzi.

Besides political allies-turned-rivals, Mutharika and Chilima, other candidates in the presidential race are Lazarus Chakwera (Malawi Congress Party-MCP), John Chisi (Umodzi Party-UP), Peter Kuwani (Mbakuwaku Movement for Development-MMD),  Atupele Muluzi (United Democratic Front-UDF)  and Revelend Kaliya (independent).

Call it self opinion poll and deny the truth, but you will understand it after 21st May. Muzamva nkhwanga ili mutu inu. The evidence will be displayed before your eyes. Wait and see and come after the election and tell us it was self opinion.

What if the “opinion” is correct at this juncture (there are still three weeks to go)?
Then, what would be MCP’s Plan B, beside getting ready to recite the lyrics in the “ATIBELANSO CHISANKHO” song?

It’s an opinion poll iwe bulutu wa MCP. You can also do your own survey but just know that DPP is going to win these elections. Boma ili sila Joyce Banda lophweka komanso lopusa. Elections are not won on election day but on ‘selection day’. The day DPP chose APM to be their torch bearer, that’s the day the ruling party won the elections.

The only problem i have with what bulldozer has said is that in the next sentence he claimed that as far a they are concerned MCP is winning the election! So what is the difference between the MCP opinion and whatever MBC is going to broadcast? Everybody has an opinion.
